Look out homeschoolers!
Education Secretary John King says, "“Students who are homeschooled are not getting kind of the rapid instructional experience they would get in school.” Sounds like pretty soon they'll be stepping in to "help" us with that.
King did give a nod to homeschooling’s success, noting some families are “doing it incredibly well.” He also acknowledged parents are free to choose homeschooling for their family. But he said those children probably aren’t “getting the range of options that are good for all kids.”
King’s remarks worry HSLDA, which opposed his nomination in March based on his firm support for Common Core State Standards. “We believe his comments are paving the way for more government oversight to make sure that parents are being intentional,” HSLDA said in a statement. Farris is further concerned the anti-homeschooling sentiment will seep into the next administration, should Hillary Clinton win the election in November. Clinton has been a staunch supporter of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, a treaty under which, should it be ratified in the United States, parents would have little to no authority over their child’s education. “It’s really clear that any theory of parental control of education is antithetic to the central premises of the treaty, that is that the government gets to decide in every case what is best for the child,” Farris said. “It will be a tremendous attack on every parent in this country, especially those who choose educational alternatives—Christian schools, home schools—and any parent that wants to teach their children that Jesus is the only way to God.”
If you don't take the Mother of God's advice and pray the Rosary everyday to bring peace to your world, nation and family and your eternal salvation, what advice can I possibly give you?

The last time washington came after homeschoolers...Concerned Women for America uttlerly buried DC with phonecalls and letters...it was the only time I remember the system working....I forget what they were proposing but they dropped it quick....it tookem this long to show their heads again. If Hillary wins parental rights are soon gone.
To hold the office of Pope is vacant due to heresy or death is utterly Catholic and within the Churchs teachings....to hold a dead man or heretic can hold the office is insanity and not Catholic at all ANON
